The Tree House provides the playful focal point for the fully immersive Lemur exhibit experience. It functions as the necessary ‘airlock’ providing a staged exit for visitors leaving the aviary where Lemurs and visitors share the same space. Contrasting with the preceding experience of complete immersion, it provides a sheltered and contained space with elevated, curated views over the exhibit. The Tree House design is a collection of similar geometric ‘pods’, nestled together so that no two pods are the same.

Architects: Hugh Strange Architects Location: Somerset, UK Year: 2014The new building shell is constructed of a single layer of solid wood without insulation, external cladding or internal lining. The Cross-Laminated Timber panels range from 300mm to 420mm in thickness and simultaneously provide insulation and thermal mass, creating a stable internal environment for the archive in terms of its temperature and relative humidity. The simple timber forms sit on a rough in-situ cast concrete base and are protected by a profiled cement roof similar to those of the surrounding barns. The vented space between the timber and the roof cladding prevents overheating during hot summer months. In contrast to the engineered Spruce construction, the buildings are fit-out with hardwood floor ‘mats’ using timber felled from the surrounding woodlands and dried in the neighbouring wood store. Rough-sawn Cedar floorboards to the office and smooth-sanded and oiled Ash and Beech to the archive distinguish the different characters of the spaces.

DeForest Architects designed this house on Lake Wenatchee in Washington State.
MU Architecture have designed the Malbaie VIII Residence, located in the Charlevoix region of Quebec, Canada.The experience of the house takes root in the basement, within its wood cladded and concrete formed walls, where a large playroom and children’s dormitory cohabit. At the ground level, the main lobby, entirely covered in wood, welcomes you in a cozy spa-like atmosphere. From the main entrance you can access four large en-suite bedrooms and the main staircase. In contrast to the white cedar walls, the railing of the staircase is made entirely of raw hot rolled steel. With surprising lightness it acts as a backbone connecting the different levels of the house.

Archizoom, No Stop City A Climatic Universal City, 1970 
Hilberseimer, uses only one building type: a hybrid of blocks and slabs in which all civic activities, such as production, living, and commerce, are superimposed rather than zoned in different locations. Thus the form of the city emerges from the repetition of a single typology, and reflects the logic of the most conventional geometry possible— that of the grid.
